This may seem like a simple task, however, you need to be wary. As with all new frontiers there are ones who take advantage of unprotected areas. These pirates are in all areas and they are looking for the thrill of the hunt and you as the prey.”

  • KEYTARI: 8-Bit Music Maker
    “Do you LOVE 8-bit music from classic video games? Prepare to create your own! KEYTARI: 8-bit Music Maker will transform your Wii U GamePad into an 8-bit jamming machine! Simply touch the keys on your Wii U GamePad and YOU are playing KEYTARI. KEYTARI was designed to be easy to pick up and play. But to truly master KEYTARI, practice and experimentation will take you far – just like with a traditional musical instrument. Wield powerful lead instruments such as SineSquare, MultiPlex, and PolySaw. Power-Up a Background Beat, Underworld Bass, Sustain, and the Drum Kit to take your 8-bit style jamming to the Next Level! Scoring is simple. +1 for every key played. Most think the Score Board is just for fun… However, the sages speak of a hero from afar who will break past the maximum score of 9999 and thus beat KEYTARI. KEYTARI is a Wii U exclusive title. Start jamming 8-bit style with KEYTARI: 8-bit Music Maker!”

  • Land it Rocket
    “In this game your goal is to land your rocket safely, but watch out the world is full of danger like mines, lasers and turrets. Besides the main levels you can put your skills to the test in Endless mode. Earn 3-star rating by completing each 28 levels in the shortest possible time.”

  • Neon Battle
    “Maneuver your way around the circular battlefield to victory in Neon Battle! Smash your opponent out of the way and yell obscenities at them without the threat of assault charges! Well, that’s assuming you keep it in the game, with four different game modes to choose from and a selection of powerups, it’s arguably more fun than smashing someone in real life, and definitely more fun than attending court hearings! Play solo or against a friend in a race to collect points by bouncing the ball and keeping it from going out of bounds! And for when your friends are busy/non-existent, you can play against the CPU!”

  • Santa Factory
    “In a moment of crisis, use the special magic wands of Santa Claus. During the adventure, you can study the various English words. As Christmas coming, Santa asked Tonttu to get kids’ Christmas wish letters. Santa gave Tonttu the special magic wands to help him get the letters. On his way to deliver the Christmas presents on Christmas Eve, there was a hole in the Christmas Santa sack, so the Christmas presents were scattered all over the earth. Santa was discouraged and asked Rudolf to get the scattered presents. Santa gave Rudolf the magic wands to help him and Rudolf started his adventure with the magic wands.”
